Fragrances for men

Fragrances for men are pretty pointless. You can’t smell yourself, and most men don’t really care how they smell as long as it doesn’t make the hot waitress at the pub gag and turn green. So the only reason we wear cologne is to attract women, as can be seen from every Axe advert ever made. So why on earth do we have all these weird scents like Pulse, Touch, Old Moldy Spice, My Finger etc.? Sure, a lot of the names like Phoenix and Rugged Mountain Breeze may appeal to our masculine egos, but if we wanted to have an effective fem-magnet you know what scent we’d use? Chocolate. Who cares if it’s not manly, women go nuts for it, so why hasn’t it been brought to market yet?
